A free agent would always rather play for a team that shows a committment to win versus a committment to the bottom line.
We're not talking about a 3rd pairing defender for the Isles. We're talking about a guy who would easily be the 2nd best defenceman that the Islanders have, and a guy who they could not acquire an equivalent of without spending way more money.
Come on JFreid youre too smart for that,
Komisarek isnt a 2nd pairing defender for Sister Theresa's Blind beggars of the poor roller hockey team,
let alone The Islanders.
Streit, Amac, Hamonic and Martinek in their sleep bring more than Komisarek does at this point, and Jurcina and Wishart at least have a pulse
We have DeHaan and Kessel on the way too
